In the Brooder
- Jun 5, 2012
Hello! I'm a fairly new egg - I started raising chicks this summer, but it didn't take long for chicken fever to hit! Amongst my little flock, I have a 16-week old Splash Marans. She is an absolute sweetie, but I would love some thoughts from a more experienced crowd on how she looks according to breed standards. She is a lap chicken, and adores her mama, so even if she isn't a perfect Marans, she's not headed for the broiler or stewpot ;-). I have no idea what color her eggs will be, although I was told they were bred to be a very dark brown. Thoughts?
